Postgraduate Opportunities in Theological Ethics at the University of Aberdeen

Michael Mawson at Aberdeen has been in touch and asked me to publicize new developments in their Department for postgraduate students interested in theological ethics:

We are pleased to announce a new one-year Master's in Theological Ethics degree at the University of Aberdeen.  Aberdeen's department of Divinity is currently one of the top-ranked theology programs in the UK, and recent appointments in the areas of Systematic Theology and Theological Ethics have strengthened the department still further. The Theological Ethics area emphasizes fundamental texts and thinkers in the Christian tradition for engaging contemporary issues and debates.  For more information: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/divinity/pgrad/MThTheologicalEthics.shtml

If you have questions or are interested in applying to the MTh degree feel free to contact Professor Bernd Wannenwetsch, Dr Brian Brock or Dr Michael Mawson.  We will also be happy to meet with prospective students at the … Society of Christian Ethics meeting (in Chicago in January 2013).

In addition, we would be happy to discuss funding options for both prospective Master's and doctoral students.  Among other things, there will be doctoral funding in the two following two interdisciplinary collaborations: 'Normativity – Nature, Narrative and Nihilism' and 'Transitional Justice, Peace and Reconciliation.'  We would be interested in supporting Welcome Trust applications for students hoping to work in the area of bioethics. Finally, we are willing to support external funding applications for especially strong proposals.  For additional information on funding: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/divinity/pgrad/awards.shtml
